LITTLE FOSSIL CREEK. Little Fossil Creek rises just west of Blue Mound in northwestern Tarrant County (at 32°53' N, 97°23' W) and runs southeast ten miles to its mouth on Big Fossil Creek, at the southeastern edge of Haltom City (at 32°47' N, 97°14' W). The creek is intermittent in its upper reaches. It traverses flat to rolling terrain surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, junipers, conifers, grasses, chaparral, and cacti. The area is heavily urbanized.
